This is a one day workshop, delivered live by Kevin Fehin, Senior Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist. Among other qualifications Kevin holds a Masters in Psychoanalytic Studies.

This course will explore how developmental trauma may manifest in adult presentations and provide appropriate interventions to engage with complex trauma.  This workshop is open to individuals. The training can also be delivered as in-house training to groups.

The aim of the training is to assist practitioners in identifying signs and symptoms of complex trauma and how it has been appropriated by the adult personality. The workshop will also focus on the hidden aspects of trauma that nonetheless exert influence over the personality. Finally the workshop will address the key therapeutic issues involved in complex trauma such as trust, safety, avoidance, shame and regression, together with the most effective therapeutic strategies for developing a specific therapeutic relationship tailored to the presentation of complex trauma.


This workshop will be delivered live on Zoom: The course will allow you to interact with your trainer and other participants in a virtual classroom where, in addition to the workshop content, there will be time built in for live discussions, question & answer sessions and skills practice. You can access the course wherever you have an internet connection; on a desktop, tablet or even a smartphone.
